day 1815 – designer faces

goofing around at the end of friday and taking a final picture with one that’s leaving us. so glad the work week is over because i had to swallow so much that i didn’t want to deal with. i left the office and headed straight for flipping. it turned out to be a very good class. i was urged to try an unspotted back tuck onto the blue mat – the first one on my own in years. somehow things felt right today; i made much more progress compared to all of last week and happily left the gym feeling accomplished. i’m a lot more comfortable with a few of the moves and a lot closer to landing it on the floor

day 1647 – fishy game

it’s friday anf i have hockey; this combination usually means it’s a good day. i fit a workout in  between as part of my warmup to get me psyched up for this game. i was feeling strong going through my warmup and light power lifts. fishsticks as a whole played a well rounded game and dominated the ice in every way. i for one had a solid game with many nice passes, and a breakaway that could have ended the game. though we had many missed opportunities and didn’t come away with the win, but i have an assist to show for. feeling the frustration of being blindsided with no call, i played with more aggression and took someone down to send a message. quite satisfied with my game performance and know that i’ve just tied up my bet 

day 1626 – barbie’s birthday 


the true meaning of reflecting ceiling plan is an artistic photo. all of us sitting down at the family table celebrating another birthday. we had a long dinner with lots of xiao long bao followed by a mango mousse cake. the day had a startling start but actually turned out pretty well despite an overwhelming amount of work accumulating on my plate. being friday, it was time for me to live a little and lift a little. the stress of the work week was negated with some olympic lifts. though i’m noticeably rusty, i’m working diligently trying to clean up my olympic lifts. going about my business with my olympic lifts and happy that my hand is showing some resiliency even with usage

day 1318 – clubhouse 

practicing for queen’s tournament in this private clubhouse. my arm didn’t hold up for long before it went dead halfway through. good thing i’m going into my chiropractor tomorrow. thank goodness i made it to friday after feeling unwell for most of it. everyday since i returned from portland, with the exception of wednesday, has been a late night. i really need to set a protocol for my sleeping schedule because i don’t foresee my schedule slowing down this month

day 1304 – crummy friday 

it doesn’t take much time make me feel crummy – just a sleeplessness night and some unjust comments. i couldn’t stop thinking about it and how it made me more uncomfortable. what’s also uncomfortable is my hip, glute and now my quad from the bench fall. somehow i’ll have to get through this thirteen hour work day in a fifteen hour span. i can only convince myself it’s good to be friday although i’ll spend my weekend at taekwondo too

day 1262 – tofu fanatic

the whole family gathered to celebrate my dad’s birthday. there were many dishes on the table just like any typical chinese seafood restaurant, but this was by far my favourite dish. i enjoyed a good sit down meal with my family, we haven’t had much opportunity to engage like tonight. thankful i made it to friday. this week has been brutal as i had wavering moments and tons on my mind. it’s not resolved, but i’m holding it together

day 926 – deadpool me

image

occupying myself with timeplay and patiently waiting for deadpool to begin. i am usually not a big enough movie fan to watch blockbuster movies on premier day, but couldn’t turn down the avx tickets offer. don’t want to spoil it for everyone else. all i’m going to say is it’s a good movie and i loved ryan reynold’s tricking moves and secretly wished i could learn some of them, but i was not expecting it to be so gory
